About PCVRnews

PCVRNews.com consolidates the latest and most relevant Virtual Reality news individually selected from dozens of sources into one website and provides unique reviews of Virtual Reality games and technology.

Brought to you by:

An alternate reality enthusiast that has liked Virtual Reality since playing Dactyl Nightmare in an arcade in the early 1990s. It’s true, I bought a Nintendo Virtual Boy and although extremely disappointed I still had hope for VR because of reading about the prototypes of the Sega VR and the Atari Jaguar VR. Later on I ended up with an Forte VFX-1 which started to show the potential for the technology but was obviously not quite ready for prime time yet. I played around with phone VR for a while but still wanted something more immersive. Fast forward to the present with all the excellent VR options available and I remain very excited about how far it all has come along.

Why:

I wanted to make a VR news aggregation site with only the most interesting and relevant industry related news on it each day instead of a information overload or underload. I have found that there is a lot of duplication between technical and VR websites on their VR information, click-bait VR articles, and articles with just a couple quotes that are ultimately just indirect links to the real story. I’m already reading all the news I can find anyways and I always appreciate good aggregation of news for the sake of efficiency. I also like writing about my own VR gear and games so I just bring the best of it all into one location.

What:

I’m currently running a computer I built from scratch with:

Intel i7 Processor (~$299 – Check Amazon)
HTC Vive (~$599 – Check Amazon)
Mid-range Graphics Card (~$399 – Check Amazon) or see more options

This setup works great for me.

Finally:

I’m not planning on having any third-party ads on this website but I do use Amazon Affiliate Links to help pay for the costs of running a website. I only recommend products that I personally use or would use. The Amazon links redirect automatically based on your location so for example a US visitor with see the Amazon US product and a UK visitor will see the Amazon UK product. It doesn’t make the item cost more when you use these links but if something is purchased then I get a very small percentage of the sale for the referral. I have been shopping at Amazon.com for a long time and found them to be a great store.

Please feel free to post comments and opinions, but due to spammers if there is a link in the comment it will have to be approved. Other than that I have commenting set up with the easiest options I have available to make it as simple as possible to make for a more engaging site.

Enjoy!
